    1 September 2015, 7:29 pm by: Jared Nelson

    Folmer Kelly of Sets and Settings, developer of games like Trap Tower [Free] and Ultrahyper [Free], and co-developer of Wrasslin' [Free] and Battle Golf [Free], has a new game in the works and it's looking pretty darn awesome so far. It's simply called…
  • September Patreon Update - Still Alive

    1 September 2015, 6:47 pm by: Eli Hodapp

    The TouchArcade Patreon is still kicking ass and taking names. We recently sent out the first of what's likely going to be a monthly newsletter of sorts to our community which has us surging towards having 500 total patrons, which is a pretty rad number to…
  • 'Dandy: Or A Brief Glimpse Into the Life of a Candy Alchemist' Review - Sweet Gameplay Wrapped In…

    1 September 2015, 5:43 pm by: Tasos Lazarides

    To explain why I wanted to give Dandy: Or a Brief Glimpse Into the Life of a Candy Alchemist [$3.99] a try once I saw it pop up on the App Store, I first need to talk a bit about the type of shoot 'em ups I enjoy. One of the few genres of games I've never
  • 'Blocky Highway' is an Endless Runner that Actually Looks Interesting, Coming this Thursday

    1 September 2015, 4:22 pm by: Jared Nelson

    Ok, behind the back endless runners are a tough sell in today's App Store. It's just been done to death, you know? Anyway, every once in a while a developer will come along and do something really neat with the idea of an endless runner. That's the feeling I…
  • A Relatively Small 'World of Tanks: Blitz' Update Should Roll Out Soon

    1 September 2015, 3:19 pm by: Tasos Lazarides

    I've been doing some digging on the World of Tanks: Blitz [Free] forums today because I had a feeling the new update should be coming at some point in early September (it fits the timing of their updates), and I was right. While official word is somewhat…
  • DotEmu Founders Sell Company and Form Playdigious, Announce First Project 'Pix the Cat' from…

    1 September 2015, 2:01 pm by: Jared Nelson

    Well here's something I was not expecting. DotEmu, who have won my heart over the years for their expertise in porting over classic video games with extreme care and thoughtfulness, was sold by its founders in September of 2014, which was apparently…
  • 'Versus - The Lost Ones' Review - An Uneven First Act

    1 September 2015, 1:00 pm by: Shaun Musgrave

    It's pretty difficult to pull off the first part of an intended series of stories. You have make sure you end it with a lot of possbilities in the air, but at the same time, you have to give people a satisying enough standalone plot that they'll want to stick…
  • TouchArcade Deals: ZeroLemon SolarJuice 20000mAh Battery That Can Charge Itself

    1 September 2015, 12:06 pm by: Eli Hodapp

    Alright, first off, I meant to post this yesterday, so the time left on this deal is a little shorter than some of the other stuff we typically post... But, chalk that up to planning my day around in-flight WiFi that didn't work. (And flight attendants who…
  • 'Zoombinis' Review - Edutainment at its Most Adorable

    1 September 2015, 10:59 am by: Chris Carter

    As a kid, I was pretty big into edutainment games. Any excuse to play video games in school I took, from Number Munchers to Oregon Trail. Some titles were more "entertainment" than "education," but I ran with it anyway -- and in some cases, I taught my fellow…
  • 'Pocket God Vs Desert Ashes' Review - An Unexpected Pairing, With Expected Results

    1 September 2015, 10:00 am by: Shaun Musgrave

    There have been a lot of weird crossovers throughout the history of entertainment, and only half of them involve Angry Birds.  Remember when Inspector Gadget showed up on the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, or that time when Archie met the Punisher, or when the…
  • Square Enix Announces Tokyo Game Show 2015 Line-Up, With First Screens Of 'Dragon Quest 7'

    1 September 2015, 4:51 am by: Shaun Musgrave

    It's that wonderful time of the year in Japan where the heat starts to subside a little, the kids are trying to finish two months of homework in two days, and game companies start to reveal their line-up for the annual Tokyo Game Show. Held at Makuhari Messe…
  • We're Streaming iOS Games Live on Mobcrush [Currently Offline]

    31 August 2015, 9:07 pm by: Eli Hodapp

    We're streaming live on Mobcrush right now. There's a couple different ways you can watch the stream, and they all work equally well and it's really just a matter of personal preference as to which method you prefer. The easiest way to watch is just watching…
  • More Apple TV Rumors: Motion Controls Limited, but Bluetooth Controller Support a Main Focus for…

    31 August 2015, 8:08 pm by: Jared Nelson

    Just last Friday the Apple world was abuzz over the latest rumor for the (rumored) new Apple TV which is (rumored) to be unveiled at Apple's September 9th media event. That rumor, from TechCrunch, stated that the revamped remote control for the new Apple TV…
  • PAX Prime 2015: 'Minecraft Story Mode' Seems Great, but Will Minecraft Fans Love It?

    31 August 2015, 5:00 pm by: Carter Dotson

    Sometimes, a game is exactly what it seems like it would be on the tin. Minecraft Story Mode sounded a lot like it would be a mixture of the familiar Telltale narrative and gameplay tropes with the world of Minecraft [$6.99]. How exactly that combination would…
  • PAX Prime 2015: 'Eon Altar' is a Co-Op RPG for Steam That Uses Mobile Devices as Controllers

    31 August 2015, 4:30 pm by: Carter Dotson

    Eon Altar isn't a mobile game. But it's got a super-cool mobile integration where you can use mobile devices to play the game. It's a quasi-turn-based RPG, where you and 3 other players battle against waves of enemies, and you control your character and battle…
  • PAX Prime 2015: 'Riptide GP: Renegade' Won't be Mobile First, but it's Still Mobile Jet Ski Racing

    31 August 2015, 4:00 pm by: Carter Dotson

    My initial reaction to finding out that Vector Unit was showing off Riptide GP: Renegade at PAX Prime, but for consoles, was to say "Et tu, Vector Unit?" But not so fast, my friend – I met with the developers of Riptide GP 2 [$0.99] and Hydro Thunder…
  • PAX Prime 2015: Rocketcat Games is Closer to Finishing 'Death Road to Canada', 'Dad by the Sword',…

    31 August 2015, 3:30 pm by: Carter Dotson

    Death Road to Canada is coming! It seriously is still happening despite extensive delays; I played it at the Rocketcat booth at PAX Prime 2015! This was another game that was demoed on PC with a controller, but as it's running on the Punch Quest [Free] engine…
  • PAX Prime 2015: 'VA-11 HALL-A' is Yet Another Cyberpunk Waifu Bartending Simulation

    31 August 2015, 3:15 pm by: Carter Dotson

    VA-11 HALL-A is kind of an odd one. It's a bartending simulator meets a visual novel somewhere in a cyberpunk dystopia. You play as the bartender at the bar pronounced Vallhalla. If you're looking for a very "game-like" game here, you may be disappointed as…
  • PAX Prime 2015: 'Vainglory' Introduces Skye and New Seasons Structure

    31 August 2015, 3:00 pm by: Carter Dotson

    Vainglory [Free] is trucking along with more content being added to the game regularly, with a new character being added, and a big structural change to online ranks and their upcoming resets. Skye is the latest character, and is a tribute to the Korean style…
  • PAX Prime 2015: 'Mushroom 11' Will Come to Mobile...and Should be Best on Mobile

    31 August 2015, 2:45 pm by: Carter Dotson

    One of the issues with being one of the few mobile-exclusive journalists out there comes at convention time. There's a lot of games that it can be difficult to tell if they're mobile or not based on just seeing them being demoed on a desktop with a controller.…
